I'm in a sharing mood today (after posting in the supernatural forum today as well) so I thought I would share a sighting that both myself and my mum
experienced when I was much younger.
Mum had come to pick me up after hockey practice, on a Wednesday night at about 8:00pm. Since I played goalie, I was all the last to leave because I
had to take off all of my pads.
When I finally got to the (open air) carpark, our car was one of three cars left, however the other two were empty.
When I got in mum said to me "Hey Mike, check out that light" I looked out of the front windshield over to the Moresby Ranges (a small grouping of
hills on the outskirts of town).
There was a yellow light moving at incredible speeds in a direct line from south to north. After making a direct horizontal line it would stop, pulse
three times then take off at another direction - sometimes straight up, sometimes diagonally, but ALWAYS in a straight line.
After watching for about 10 minutes, with a bit of dialogue between my mum and I (mostly just "wow what do you think it is" etc) the light stopped -
pulsed three times then (I thought) stopped. After a few seconds both mum and I noticed that it hadnt stopped - it was getting larger.
Normally I would have stopped and waited to see what it was, however I felt really threatened by this light speeding towards us. I panicked and told
mum - "lets get the hell out of here mum, we're sitting in the middle of a carpark, BY OUR SELF, with the headlights on!"
My mum is usually pretty level headed, but she looked very anxious as well.
As we started to leave the carpark I tried to keep my eye on the light, however there were a number of tall trees lining the street, so as we got out
onto the street I lost sight of it behind the trees and wasnt able to find again that night.
We both got home, feeling very shaken - which was unusual because my family has a strong belief in the paranormal and in UFO's and we have often sat
around late at night talking about it and never felt affected. Both mum and I agreed, that we both felt threatened by whatever it was - and there was
no doubt in out mind that if we hadnt of left, we would have been much worse off.
Has anyone else had this feeling when sighting a UFO?
I had often heard that people were paralysed/dumbstruck when watching them - however we felt almost compelled to leave.
